Question about Denon AVR-1906 Receiver
If your amp looks like it's going to work as normal (ie the front display lights up as it should etc), but then the amp goes into protection mode when the anti-thud circuit times out, then I know what's likely to be wrong.
(The red standby button light flashes quickly)
It's one of the power amplifier channels which has gone faulty.
I just found this out after having this problem with my AVR-1906.
I took the amp apart and de-soldered the suspected channel power transistors (centre channel in my case).....and hey-presto! it fired up as normal (obviously the centre channel would be out of service).
I have ordered the replacement transistors from Farnell (UK) at a miserly cost of around £2-£3 each.
Just waiting for them to arrive.
An alternative is, if you don't use all your channels, take the transistors from a known working but not needed channel and swap them over with the duff ones.
Hope thats of use!

Hi all, I've had the same thing with a 1906 that I bought on e-bay.
With the promise of re-imbursal from the seller, I managed to find a local (S.Wales, UK) repair shop that fixed the amp overnight for £45.00. It was, in this case a couple of dry joints causing exactly the same symptoms.
You can get it fixed professionally for little money if you find a small repair outfit, so I'd reccommend that you don't go changing transistors around unless you can tell for sure that that is your problem.
